Adam Wixted on the road to recovery after difficult time with injury

By Adam Wixted (@AdamWixted)

On the 8th of March (ironically on my birthday) while playing away to Limerick in the Markets Field I dislocated my shoulder at the beginning of the second half. From what I can remember it was just a slight nudge I got in my back while I was dribbling with the ball and I was off balance. I tried to soften my landing by putting my hands out and that’s when it popped out of place… it was out of place maybe for about 20 minutes or more… Continue reading “Adam Wixted on the road to recovery after difficult time with injury”

Forgotten Clubs: Brooklyn FC

By Philip O’Rourke (@effect_phil)

This club has to be the most difficult one that I have written about in these ‘Forgotten Clubs’ pieces. There are many reasons for this, the fact it went out of existence back in the 1920’s, the lack of fans that are still alive today (If any) and the lack of information about the club itself, even on the internet. Even Wikipedia gave very little into the life of this club. Continue reading “Forgotten Clubs: Brooklyn FC”

Interview with Wexford Youths Blessing Kingsley

By Gerard Mulreaney (@gerardmulreaney)

It’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks for Wexford Youths starlet Blessing Kingsley. The youngster from Graiguecullen, Co Carlow scored an International goal for Ireland, and then in the space of just 24 hours scored her first Senior goal for Wexford and followed that up by scoring twice for their U17’s. In their next game she again scored twice as Wexford beat Greystones United. Continue reading “Interview with Wexford Youths Blessing Kingsley”
